The second-term mayor of Lewiston was elected to the Maine Senate in the November election. He will serve in the Legislature and continue as mayor until his term in the city expires. John also was one of seven people nationwide selected for the Outstanding TRIO Award. Presented by the National Council of Educational Opportunity Assn., the TRIO programs help low-income, disadvantaged students enter and succeed in colleges and help students overcome environmental, cultural, and academic barriers to higher education. Honorees must have been a former Upward Bound TRIO participant — an experience John credits with making a real difference in his life.

MacPhee, Morrison, Mahoney & Miller, 250 Summer St, Boston, MA 02210-1181Next Reunion June 6-8, 1997. Laaaaaaa!!!! And that, folks, is the sound of the fat lady singing, my swan song. I am taking myself off the list for reelection to the job as your class secretary. Want the job? Apply now! First-class travel, high pay, great bennies! Well, actually, no, but the College does occasionally invite you for a sandwich and a Diet Coke. Seriously, it’s been a lot of fun getting back in touch with people, and as I look back on the last nine years I am filled with awe at how much has happened: three houses (including my years in Tokyo), sickness and health, too many gray hairs, my friends’ children turning into college-aged young people themselves. (Has anyone else noticed this? I mean, I don’t get older, and my friends don’t get older, but these kids. They are like little ticking clocks reminding me that, yes, I am now more than 20 years away from my time at Bates!) If I can be said to have accomplished anything at all during my tenure, I hope it is this: After years of bitching and moaning (at which I am an expert — my employees don’t call me “Bitch Goddess” for nothing, and my tiara and ermine robe are in the closet!), I believe I have finally convinced the College to lighten up on our class notes. To those of you who have been frustrated by the way your news has appeared, we promise a less formal, more conversational format, starting now and continuing in the future. So please write in, even though your “news” may not be of work promotions, etc. Your friends are interested, and the College will print it. And now, onward to the news:

Libby Bassette Lennox is director of development at Alacrity Systems Inc. in Hackettstown, N.J. They are software engineers who develop drivers and applications for Windows-based PCs that communicate with multifunction devices. She says they are looking for experienced Windows programmers if anyone would like to relocate to beautiful northwest New Jersey! Libby’s other full-time job is mother of three: Scott (14), Jack (12), and Annie (9). A soccer mom! She is still sailing and skiing and just out in nature — also poking around for antiques. A quote: “I long for a simpler life and feel almost ready to make some changes. Does anyone else out there feel this way?”… Marian Bubbers Laroche is still busy parenting her children, ages 11, 13, and 15, and driving 1,000-plus miles per week for their skating. They are just starting to make the college rounds (yikes, how did we get this old?). She continues in her career as a nurse at Mid Coast Hospital in Bath and runs into Maureen Goudreau andDave Enright ’77 almost daily at work, and often sees Bruce Campbell at the rink. They are thinking of moving down my way and actually looked at a house on my road in Falmouth, so Marian and I might once again be neighbors as we were 20 years ago at Roger Bill! Geez, Marian, some of us can remember when all you had to do was work at WRJR: “Marian Boobers keeping you abreast of the news!”… Douglas Caracappa spent some very enjoyable time in Maine last summer on the schooner Timberwind out of Rockport…. Loads of good news fromNeal Carter up there in the frozen North. Neal won the National Association of Homebuilders Energy Value Housing Award for the most advanced or innovative home in the cold climate region of the country. He’s been taking a short sabbatical from building to guide people through the process of designing a home harmonious with their site, their lives, and the environment as well as teaching builders and architects the methods of solar-assisted and superinsulated homes that are healthy, too (see profile this section). But his really big news is his third home birth: son Beorn Naia (“bear” and “dolphin”) was born at 4:55 a.m. on Dec. 5, 1995, with Neal and midwives in attendance to Susan. I received a beautiful letter from Neal describing the birth. Our thoughts are with you, Neal, and your family! Neal plans to be at Reunion…. Well, I just got off the phone with Shauna Deady Hyde, who says she’ll kill me if I write anything about her, so I guess I’m a dead duck. A quote: “I don’t know what to say, I have a perfectly normal life, normal kids, a cool job.” Shauna lives five minutes up the road from me, so I happen to know that she has a broad intellectual life, lots of friends, and wonderful kids. But apparently no telephone or car, since she hardly ever phones, and almost never stops by! I do occasionally get to wave at her when I see her running at lunchtime, however…. After receiving a Ph.D. in ecology at Dartmouth and doing a post-doc at Virginia Tech, Michele Dionne moved back to Maine in 1991 and is directing the research program at Wells (Maine) National Estuary Research Reserve. Michele married Michael Wright in 1993, and bought his family farmhouse in Berwick in 1994. Michael is a cabinetmaker, organic farmer, and all-around community activist who led a successful drive to declare Berwick a nuclear-free zone. He is also founder and longtime president of the Berwick Library Assn. Their first daughter was born Feb. 17, 1995, and their second Aug. 17, 1996. The girls’ names are a mixture of Irish and French, the pooled heritage of their parents: Moira Adele Dionne Mullin Wright and Ciara Michele Dionne McCarthy Wright, but Michele says for the moment they are going by just their first and last names. Michele (and family?) will be at Reunion in June…. For the past three years Stu Eldridge has been director of the Archeology in Spain program offered through Northfield Mount Hermon’s Advanced Studies program. They take between eight and ten students to northern Spain for five weeks and participate as crew at the archeological site of Tiermes in Soria in northern Spain. Tiermes was a provincial capital city at the height of the Roman Empire. He says it’s a great combination of practical archeological pursuits and an introduction to the culture and history of Spain. Lots of castle hunting and fiestas, too!… Recent trips for Barry Gilberg have included Miami’s South Beach and a summer trip to Glacier National Park in Montana. He continues to be employed as a clinical social worker at the Charlotte (N.C.) Institute of Rehabilitation…. In the last 21 years, Tod(Goble) Gobledale has spent 11 years living in Africa, mostly South Africa and Zimbabwe. He and his wife, Ana, work for the United Congregational Church of South Africa, a partner church to the United Church of Christ in the United States. Tod and Ana have pastoral responsibilities for 26 churches. They do lay-leadership training, AIDS education, and chaplain at the local high school. Tod says they are delighted to be there, and enjoy watching their children growing up in an environment so different from their own childhood experiences. He asked that I send greetings to all his friends…. From my roommate Muffin Milligan and her husband (my might-as-well-have-been-my-roommate-he-was-there-so-much), Dana Johnston, the following: “After bouncing from Bates to Minnesota, Oklahoma, Norway, and California, we settled down in Eugene, Ore., where we both work for the Univ. of Oregon. Muffin works in the university publications office and works desktop publishing magic on her Mac. Dana is associate professor in and chairs the Department of Geological Sciences.” They haven’t been back to visit Bates since 1978 and are greatly looking forward to the many changes they have read about in Bates Magazine. Obviously, they will be at Reunion. How cool — I haven’t seen them since graduation…. Paul Joyce, now living in Korea, has been one of my best correspondents. (Hope you keep it up, Paul, even after I’m not secretary anymore.) To make a long story short, Paul will be in Korea at least another two years as he is in love with the country (not to mention the women, right, Paul?). He is involved with a Korean-owned communications business called 21st Century Communications. They hold seminars and coordinate native-speaking and conversational programs for various institutions and business groups. He’d like to put all his time into that venture but really enjoys the one-to-one contact with all the children he teaches. Paul has been doing lots of traveling around Asia, but still maintains his home on the golf course in Richmond, Va. He’s hitting the gym every day and plays a bit of b-ball with the kids. Paul is great about answering people’s letters, so drop him a line, c/o Eiffel Institute Daeyon-dong 1740-2, Nam-gu, Korea. He may get the chance to show up this June — we hope….Elizabeth MacKie is also abroad. I got an e-mail not from her, but from her husband, Joe Venturato. He says that their new address is Langangsstrand 15, 182 75, Stocksund, Sweden. They can also be reached via e-mail atJventurato@aol.com. Joe is CFO at GE-Capital/Scandinavia and Elizabeth is home with the kids: Emily, Erin, and Peter…. Steve McGrath moved to Maine in July. He’s with Wright Express, a credit card company that has had 40 to 60 percent year-over-year growth. Steve is director of financial planning and does budgets, forecasts, strategic plans, and some limited M&A work. Wife Beth and their kids Gordon (10) and Garrett (7) love the new house and being in Maine. (Well, who doesn’t?) And hey, Steve, better keep it quiet at Reunion: I live next door to the guy that owns Wright Express — no k
idding!… Kerry Moore achieved the rank of Shodan, which is first-degree black belt, in Aikido. The family (Sioux, Emily, and Alex) took a tour of the southwestern national parks last summer, which Kerry says was awe inspiring. He continues to work as director of the Behavioral Health Consortium Inc., a set of four psychiatric and substance-abuse treatment day programs. Last November, he organized the Merrimack Behavioral Healthcare Alliance, an interagency network collaborative to try to facilitate improved communication, cooperation, and collaboration between area treatment services. He hopes to present the project at this summer’s Assn. for Ambulatory Behavioral Healthcare Conference in New Orleans…. OK, giving out my e-mail address worked great: about half of you e-mailed me and the other half did the snail-mail routine. Apparently “fax” is not in the class’s vocabulary, because I only have two lonely ones here, one from Dave Mortimer, who has been named a partner in Scenic Solutions, a custom design and fabrication company that does film, television, and industrial work, as well as theater work for most of the companies in Portland and central Maine. He’s still got his Sunday morning radio show on WRBC featuring Celtic music and has just returned from a trip to Ireland to record live pub music and hike in Burren. He’s seeing lots of McGrath, his former roomie. Dave will, of course, be at Reunion in June (but as those of who know him well know, he never left; I think he’s still living in J.B.)… Kerri Salls Moyer says “no news” but she will be at Reunion. In fact, she has volunteered towork at Reunion. For those of you attached at the hip to your computers, Kerri can be reached atKSMoyer@world.com…. My other sole fax is from Bill Smith who is branch manager of the Portland office of Legg Mason. I saw Bill last year at my yacht club’s Monhegan Island race party (Legg was helping to sponsor it), and yeah, he’s still gorgeous. Getting better with age, even. Bill is also president of the PTA at Holy Cross School…. Condolences to Shari Spencer Parsons whose father and grandfather both passed away this year. She’s doing lots for her grandmother and also made a slight career change. After 18 years of teaching high school social studies, she switched to middle school and is loving it. Next year her own son will be her student. Shari is coming to Reunion!… Carol Richardson Rodgers is finishing her dissertation at Harvard Graduate School of Education. She says she is still fighting to find breathing space between family, work, the dissertation, and the driving that connects them all, “but I love all aspects of my life and cannot complain,” she says…. Robert Riley and his wife of 10 years, Tammy, are living in Colorado with their two children, Craig (5) and Alexandra (2). Bob is western regional sales manager for Technol Orthopedic Products. He says that skiing and kids’ soccer take up whatever free time is available…. Janmarie Toker is another one of my almost-neighbors. She lives in Yarmouth, and we run into each other at the dry cleaners. Janmarie got married to Gregory Strong on Sept. 3, 1994, with several Bates pals at the wedding: Robin Lee ’77, Debbie Kupetz-Hart ’77, Ellen Gross ’77, Jo-Ann Kayatta Arich’77, Nancy Shroeter Werner ’77, Drew Dedo ’78, and Steve McManus. Their baby boy was born on Christmas Day 1995: Gregory Edward. Janmarie has e-mail: janstrong@aol.com…. Karl Toner is wondering if there are any other Batesies in Ohio. He is managing partner of a brand new Outback Steakhouse. He and wife Marion and daughter Samantha (3) moved there about two years ago after three years in south Florida. Welcome back to the frozen North, Karl! He will be at Reunion, and is trying to drum up some more interest: Bill Brandell, Mark Shapiro, Ben Flynn (my brother’s Kingswood bud), Roy Lockhart, and more! Be there or be square…. Gail Virtue Basiliere received her master’s in education at Antioch last November…. Ann Whitney Walsh is a research scientist at Bristol Myers Squibb Research Institute in Wallingford, Conn. She lives in North Branford with her husband of 10 years, daughter Lindsay, and animal friends too numerous to mention…. And, in the “some things never change” department, a short word about Reunion: Party at my house! Uh, well, it’s a bit bigger than my room at the Bill, and you don’t have to walk up four flights of stairs; details will follow. I am currently working with the College to do an extended Reunion for those of you coming from afar who would like to stay in Maine for longer than just Reunion Weekend. My guess is that I’ll have an open house here for arrivals on Wednesday, a Casco Bay ferry-cruise on Thursday, with a dinner at a downtown Portland restaurant on Thursday night. Perhaps we would block off a bunch of rooms at a Portland hotel for those who care to take advantage of the extra couple of days in Maine. If you have any other ideas on an activity for Thursday, give them to me. In any case, my home will be open starting Wednesday, June 4, for those who get to town early and want to touch base. I am located on the ocean in Falmouth, just north of Portland, about 15 minutes from the jetport and about 40 minutes from the College…and 110 miles north of Boston. Best regards to all, Sparks.
